. but yesterday president obama had spoke. he did come to the podium this is an annual event. one . things he focused on. he didn't say the word terror in regard to libya. but talked about the freedom of speech right we have in this counselry. >> i know some who ask, why don't we ban such a video. the answer is enshrined in our laws . our constitution protects the right to free speech. here in the united states, countless publicications provoke offense. like me, the majorit of the merrence are christian and yet we don't ban blasphemy on our sacred beliefs. as president of our country and commander of chief of our military i accept people call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. >> steve: if the president continues to talk about freedom of speech we have in this country, that's true. but why the dumb movie? he kept referring to the movie as the cause of the movie. the administration said it is nootnot true. >> gretchen: i can think of countless other examples of freedom of speech . maybe he shouldn't have chosen himself of people speaking poorly approximat
reading on -- reads of the morning. president obama makes another trip to ohio. romney definitely needs to put ohio back in play. the president simile wants to put it away. >>> today romney is out with a straight-to-camera ad. the ad itself is a bit of an admission that the 478% comments have done serious damage and the attacks on his personal wealth are also sinking in. take a look at the ad. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class fami families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good-paying job. >> worth noting, that's his first candidate-to-camera ad. this morning the obama campaign have another ad out hitting on the 47% comment. this is what it looks like. >> when mitt romney dismissed 47% of americans for not pulling their weight, he attacked millions of hard-working people making $25,000, $35,000 a year $40,000 a year. romney paid just 14% last year on over $13 million in income
been trying to have a campaign that was structured around the idea that barack obama was a nice guy, a good fellow, a good dad and an all-around swell american but that mitt romney thought that he could probably do a better job being president and manager of the economy than he could because they were very worried about not only fending voters had voted for obama in 2008. they didn't want to sound like romney was being a jerk, but they were worried, too, pretty obviously, about what the establishment press was going to say. if romney came out and attacked the first black president on his record and went after him, what would people say? well, that strategy, the latest polling tells us, has not exactly been a bell ringer in ohio. so what you hear from romney is he gets to the must-win. it is an absolutely must-win state for him is this tough new tone, and not only is he talking about the economy as you heard him do there, but guess what's back? the debt clock. they've got the debt clock back, and they're talking a lot about how much president obama's policies cost, they're talking ab
. it is confusing. we have a variety of polls showing a variety of things. gallup is showing obama with a six-point lead. another poll from the last ten days show it is a one-point race but obama has extended the lead in thible average to four points. with the latest round swing state polling it looks like the race has tipped in his direction for the time being. >>neil: could we have a split view of this, a 2000 deal where the popular vote going one way, and that is tight. again, this depends on the poll. the swing state polls, then, not nearly so tight, for now? i stress, for now. could you see that as a possibility? >>guest: not at the moment. look, that is always a possible. if the race -- it is the fundamental of this race that are reasserted and it tightens to the end which most people expect it to do, we could see a lot the swing states getting in position where you can create scenarios where you can end up with an electoral tie or something very close along those lines. right now, though, for the moment, the race looks like mitt romney is slipping and obama is in front. >>neil: i was t

"wall street journal" poll. three more states now going into the obama column just a few moments ago. new hampshire, nevada and north carolina. in new hampshire, among likely voters, the spread is now seven points. margin error is about 3%. in nevada, it is a 2% spread within the margin of error. in north carolina, also within the margin of error, but now in favor of president obama. this is a state many people thought that could not happen in given especially the gay marriage debate, but these are the latest numbers we have tonight. obama is now leadinging in the latest polling from all nine battleground states. particularly a problem tonight is florida. the latest cbs poll shows obama ahead by nine points in florida. so, is this true? you may have heard about this. many on the right saying the polls are skewed. they're unfair. here is why republican strategist karl rove who knows polls and elections better than anyone says these polls can't possibly be right. >> think about this. romney and obama get each roughly the same percentage of the republicans and democrats as their opponen
,000. >> woodruff: president obama and governor mitt romney were slugging it out again today on the campaign trail, both of them in the battleground state of ohio. and both of them mindful of the need to turn out younger voters, who went overwhelmingly for mr. obama in 2008, but who are proving more elusive this year. i traveled to the columbus area this past weekend ahead of the candidates to find out just how elusive. >> fired up! ready to go! >> woodruff: ohio state university students about to head out from an obama campaign office to register voters, yell a familiar refrain. >> fired up! ready to go! >> woodruff: they are a coveted voting block for the president, in this fiercely contested swing state. four years ago, mr. obama won 18- to 29-year-olds nationwide by 66% to 32%. a margin so large, young people were credited with putting him over the top in several key states. >> are you registered to vote? >> woodruff: surveys suggest he's sure to capture the majority of the youngest voter block again. but after four years of watching the president grapple with the realities of governing, they'
's the issue with 2011 here? >> well, look, obama has said i'm going to tax rich people and implying he's not going to tax you. in fact, he passed tax increases on average income americans many many times during his presidency. there are 20 different taxes in obama care that we will all be paying. in addition to that, of course obama's new promise that he won't tax rich people, he's got a new term limit on it, 12 months. only next year, after that we could have a vat or other things. so if you are obama and you intend to allow the bush tax cuts to lapse, so there's a 500 billion dollars tax increase on low income people, middle income people, all americans, you want to talk about anything other than the tax increases that you have scheduled. i mean he's running up trillions of dollars of debt over the next deca decade, according to his budgets. the only way he pays for them since he's not cutting spending is to raise taxes on everyone. what do they want to do? oh gee what did romney pay in taxes four or five years ago? that has nothing to do with anything. we ought to be reducing taxes

to the best of our. -- our ability. >> as you take a minute, is this a broader issue with the obama's response to arab spring? >> in some regards yes. let me first take a moment and commend tim as i have before in his leadership on after -- after the tragedy on april 16th at virginia tech. as we learned from what we wrong and improved the safety of our colleges. tim, i commend you once again for that. now, in so far as national security, there are a lot of challenges facing us. we had an opportunity beyond the side of an uprising in iran years ago when people wanted a more free society in iran. i wish the president had said we're on the side of people who wanted to change that thee ok si but they stayed challenge. when ronald reagan called the soviet union the evil empire that gave them heart. that needs to be prevented. you have worries about particularly in syria, chemical weapons stock piles. you have attacks on embassies in libya and elsewhere around the world. this is exactly why it is so dangerous and so wrong to be playing these political games for the armed services. we need to have a

say it, who president obama says he is not a friend of anyway. >> well it's true. what we see is the top 10 to 20% of households who do benefit a lot from stocks going up in the stimulus. they are still spending for two reasons. they get this benefit from the wealth effect but also people in there go to college and they tend to peak in their spending about five years after the average person. so the average person peaked in 2007. we think what is going to happen next year this stimulus will have less impact because these wealthier households will hit their peak in spending. their kids will get out of college and drop off and stimulus i think is going to work a bit, not as much as past qes. then it will fail by mid next year. i think stocks go up a bit. fourth quarter, maybe first quarter. then you could see a bigger crash. note that stocks keep going to higher highs and when they crash, this he go to lower lows. call it megaphone pattern. melissa: just making it is the durable goods order that came out to show durable goods fell 13.2% in august. that was the biggest drop since

this economy is enacting extreme austerity, and this debate is relevant whether it's obama or romney. is austerity actually denting growth, is it creating more problems than it solves. let me give you one example. we have a sales tax in this country that has been raised from 16% to 18% to 21%. that has created a slight inflation issue. now, pensions are inflation linked. and this country in november has to increase pension abouts by inflation. so by raising 2.5 billion euro v.a.t., it will cost them 3.5 billion euro misincreased pension costs. so you can see the conundrum. they're enacting enormous amounts of austerity, but that's denting an economy which is already in recession. its second since 2008. and things are getting worse. 25% unemployment, a million up sold homes. and we haven't even talked about the banking crisis and the autonomous region, some of which including catalonia are looking trying to get some form of assembly. it is a toxic mix. >> imagine that there will be pressure on markets as this they think unfolds. we're also counting down to the wire here of course in t
